In addition to its intended purpose, the bathroom (like any part of the apartment) performs a number of important functions in the household. Here, not only take a bath and shower, but also wash clothes and store bathroom accessories. Therefore, it is necessary to equip the bathroom so that everything is not only beautiful, but also comfortable. If the area is very small, this is not a problem. The main thing is to properly organize the space, pick up functional items and furniture. And with the help of color, you can even visually enlarge the room.
Designing a bathroom, especially if it is small, takes more time and effort than planning any other room (except maybe the kitchen). The first thing to do is to determine what else you will need in addition to plumbing: a bidet, a washing machine, a closet. The main thing is to plan the space in such a way that you can move away from the object without embarrassment
to the subject and use them without difficulty. For a small bathroom, it is ideal if the door does not open inward, but outward - this adds usable space (this layout just has this drawback: the door opens inward). So keep that in mind whenever possible.
It's good to have a window in the bathroom. Basically a window in the bathroom is a rarity. But the effect of fullness of light can be achieved with the help of colors. The main tones should be light and warm. For example, in the photo on the left, a very pleasant and quite traditional yellow-blue palette is used. Also pay attention to the wood upholstery along the perimeter of the walls. It does not reduce space, as it is quite narrow, but it hides plumbing pipes very well. By the way, wood is a practical and beautiful material for decorating bathrooms, you just need to cover it with 6-7 layers of a special moisture-proof varnish. But still, it is better to use artificial granite and laminated film around the washbasin.
A small bathroom does not always fit a closet of the right size to store all the bathroom cosmetics and accessories. Therefore, a mirror with a shelf, as well as the bath itself with wide sides, will serve as an additional convenient surface for small things.
